Here And There


Work is well advanced on the erection of a 114ft tower being built at the northern end of the sanctuary of the Nelson Cathedral. The tower will incorporate vestries. Finance to cover the £36,000 job has been promised by parishioners in Nelson. When the work is completed only the building of transepts will remain.
